About the Talk

Her stories are known for their shocking violence and their seedy, white-trash atmospherics, but Flannery O’Connor led a most devout, well-regulated and conventional life on a Middle Georgia dairy farm. In this talk, biographer Jonathan Rogers explores the paradoxes of Flannery O’Connor’s life and work, in which grace comes not like a gentle rain, but like a thunderstorm, destroying even as it illuminates.
